There is a little wheel type thing that the cd sits on when it goes into the drive, the wheel makes the cd spin, these often wear out , after you play it for 27 mins the device heats up which causes it to slip , which would most likely be the noise that you can hear , it wont cost you much at all to get this fixed at a game console service store, if your sure the cd is still spinning after 27 mins , and making the noise , it is the laser cog slipping , in this case it is best to replace the whole laser section, which is one part , and if your handy at things like that i suggest you just go and buy the laser reader from a game console repair store , and swap it over your self , it is pritty simple to do ,

If I understand correctly, it seems your lens might be eaither dirty or broken. First try to clean it with a cleaning kit, if that doesn't work, take it to a service center to have it repaired.

it's dirty. that's all there is too it. your whole system is dirty if you haven't cleaned it. try cleaning it with spray-air or whatever you have in your stores. and if you've kept cleaning it try cleaning the laser.

Ps2 game i got from englan(pal) wont play in my system here .


If you are in North America, you PS2 will not play PAL formatted disks. (NTSC is what is used here). You would need a modded PS2 to play the game. If you can get your money back, I would recommend that. If not, then you might want to try to sell it on eBay.

Nokia n95 fault


I was just reading about a similar problem the other day. Make sure you don't have any of the buttons locked down in the pressed position.

Specifically, they were talking about the gallery review button, next to the camera shutter button on the right side of the phone, the one with the little PLAY arrow and the checkerboard pattern on it.

Left button doesn't work


Sounds like the pad on the board could be broken if the button itself isn't sticking down when pushed. If so you need to send it to Nintendo if it's in it's warrenty period. If not you are correct it'll cost you to have it replaced.
